And Atmospheric Administration, N. O. (n.d.). Abandoned Shipwreck Act. Retrieved from

Summary: Under the ASA, the United States asserts title to shipwrecks that are embedded in the submerged lands of a state. The federal government then transfers title to the state whose submerged lands contain the shipwreck, except when the wreck is located on public land of the United States or Indian Land, or is a U.S. warship that has not been affirmatively abandoned. The public is given notice of the location of any shipwreck when title is asserted under the ASA. In the terms of the ASA, ?embedded? means firmly affixed in the submerged lands or in coral line formations such that the use of tools of excavation is required in order to move the bottom sediments to gain access to the shipwreck, its cargo, and any part thereof. ?Submerged lands? means lands that are ?lands beneath navigable waters,? as defined in 1301.
